On a glorious hot summer evening, more than 40 members of Capel Ladies’ Club enjoyed their annual BBQ in Chairman Penny Thompson’s garden.
The ladies were greeted with a welcoming Pimm’s fortified with gin. Chef Nick Eaton of Capel cooked burgers, sausages, chicken breasts, Suffolk-caught rainbow trout and Capel mushrooms stuffed with his own special recipe. He also made a variety of interesting and delicious salads, and his cooking was widely praised. There were exotic desserts and the ladies brought wine and soft drinks.
The garden was lit by candles as dusk turned into darkness. The BBQ, on 17 July, was a happy four-hour event, full of fun and laughter with the last of the ladies leaving at 11.30pm.
